At Avalon Dental, patients place their pearly whites in the capable hands of [Dr. Broschinsky and his professional staff, who put patient comfort at the forefront of their practice. The sleek and comfy waiting room is designed to make clients feel at ease, accented by elegantly curtained, floor-to-ceiling windows and plush, earth-toned couches just begging to be turned into forts. Once patients are situated in the dental chair, a fleet of procedures awaits to spruce up their chompers or help prevent issues such as gum disease, tooth decay, or excessive back talking. Beyond basic cleanings, Dr. Broschinsky addresses cosmetic concerns using everything from veneers to fillings made from a nonmercury composite resin that matches the tooth's shade, and can even straighten teeth sans metal by creating clear, custom-fit Invisalign aligners.
During her eight years in private practice, Great American Dental's Dr. Haritha Tirupathi has cared for patients aged 3–90. Her cosmetic dental services can fit teeth with grin-enhancing accouterments such as Invisalign braces, dentures, and crowns, or polish away stains with Zoom! teeth-whitening treatments. Staffers also deploy state-of-the-art technology from intraoral cameras to digital x-rays—which emit less radiation than their analog counterparts—to check for decay during oral exams.
Although Dr. Imran Rizvi graduated dental school in 1997, his dental education has continued every day of his career. He also attends additional training at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies every year, picking up always-evolving techniques for composite fillings, teeth-whitening, and dental implant procedures. Like the best mustaches, his training also goes above and beyond the mouth, addressing neuromuscular disorders that include TMJ.
Since graduating from the University of Missouri-Kansas City in 1989, Dr. Cliff Broschinsky—known as Dr. B to his patients—has been keeping pace with the constantly evolving field of dentistry. At his practice, tooth-colored composite resins replace metal amalgams for cavity repair and Invisalign orthodontics take the place of wire braces or stern ballet instructors to nudge teeth into straighter positions. Patients undergo these modern treatments while surrounded by décor from a bygone era, including Victorian-style couches, brocade curtains, and ornate tables.
Walnut Creek Dental Center's Dr. Colin Au recognizes the importance of educating himself as well as each of his patients. That's why he regularly takes continuing education classes, attends dental conferences and seminars, and reads the nutrition panels on cereal boxes. He then transfers his knowledge to patients, equipping them with the skills to prevent common oral diseases. Should a problem arise, Dr. Au and his team stand at the ready to handle most types of mouth-related issues. For those who are afraid of dental visits, Walnut Creek is equipped with Waterlase laser equipment that substitutes for a dental drill during various treatments. Patients can also achieve straighter teeth by working with Reem Stephanos, a dental professional who specializes in orthodontia.
The dentists and hygienists at Dental Care of Walnut Creek combine plainspoken friendliness with ultramodern technology to make their patients' dental care as painless as possible. With four dentists in the building, it's easy for them to offer an extensive list of services, as well. Their shared expertise encompasses regular exams and x-rays in addition to root canals, denture fittings, and cosmetic treatments, from veneers to teeth whitening.
